Tired of making those long road trips to Connecticut, Atlantic City or Turning Stone for casino gaming action? It looks like things are looking up for casinos in upstate New York. But, before it’s voted on, officials want to know where the casinos will be allowed.

If you’re excited about the flashing lights, ringing bells, jobs and top casino entertainment that will follow the approval, you’ll have to wait til November for the vote. In the meantime, to move things in the right direction, lawmakers announced the Casino Gaming Transparency Act on the steps of City Hall in Saratoga, New York on March 11, 2013. According to YNN, “Voters would need to approve an Amendment to the Constitution that would legalize gambling. But before that happens, legislators say the public needs to know what areas are being considered for future casinos.”

All reports indicate that it looks like the expansion and welcoming of casinos will start with the already existing Saratoga Casino And Raceway. The vote on casino gaming in New York will happen in November.
